A favorite among locals for leisurely strolls, the Ditch Trail follows an old irrigation ditch and is relatively flat with gentle grades and beautiful views of Mt. Daly and the Maroon Snowmass Wilderness Area on the East end. The West end of the Ditch trails takes on a different demeanor as it takes a sharp turn to the South and climbs up to the West Government Trail before descending on the Connector Trail.
The Ditch Trail connects you to West Government, Connector, Summit or Cross Mountain trails. When connecting to any of these additional trails the ride goes from beginner to intermediate/expert.
